This weekend I am looking forward to getting outside and enjoying this lovely weather

Here is what I am loving this week:

Fall is here.

16th October 2013

It is hard to get into the spirit of Fall when you live in Florida. Our Fall does not really show itself until Christmas, and even then it has its humid moments. This weekend we embraced the Fall for what it is here in the sunshine state, and went to an arts festival, ate kettle corn and pumpkin pie gelato, went to a pumpkin patch and took pictures, bought pumpkins and went for a drive in the country. It was festive and relaxing. While the rest of the Country is pulling on their boots and sweaters and raking leaves (I’m not jealous), I am still enjoying my sandals and warm weather. This weekend was perfection, and Fall is here, so I am embracing our warm weather version of my favorite time of year. DSC_0441MesmerizedDSC_0516Daddy's GirlDSC_0581DSC_0558

It has been a whirlwind these past couple of weeks. I have been working a lot more and I am trying to find that sweet balance between working from home and being a mom and a wife. It is not easy. But I am always up for a challenge. After a very full week, I am looking forward to a somewhat relaxing weekend with my family.

Here is what I am loving this week:

* This Print!

* Fun fall projects. (I can’t believe its FALL!)

* Carrot soup. yum.

* I am loving this space.

Also Loving ~

* Cooler nights.

* Busy days.

* Grain-free banana bread.

Have a lovely weekend!

Boats, BBQ, and Babies

3rd September 2013

We had such a great weekend. On Sunday we spent all day on a boat, went to the springs, grilled out, and hung out with good friends. We rented two pontoon boats to hold 7 families for the day. I must say I was skeptical about taking an almost 9 month old on a boat ALL day long, but she did so amazing. The only challenge we ran into was the fact that she did not want to eat most of the day, so it was a struggle trying to keep fluids in her in the hot blistering heat. It was chaotic at times, but we survived, and we were glad we went. The rest of the weekend went by too fast and now I am in for a short but busy week.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

So excited about this coming week. L and I are taking our first solo airplane trip to visit my Grandma in Ohio. Slightly nervous about how she will do, but excited just the same. This week was great…I made it to the gym every single day and have so much energy despite lack of sleep. Looking forward to a fun weekend and getting ready to go north.

Here is what I am loving this week:

* Such a great post on “hurrying up”, I am definitely more of a stop and smell the roses gal.

* I may have to get this suit for my superman loving spouse. lol.

* I love everything about this changing table.

* I am kind of on a rhubarb kick as of late. YUM.

Also loving:

Have a lovely weekend!

It’s a Monday

5th August 2013

Hello! I had such a great weekend! My sis-in-law and I went indoor rock climbing on Saturday morning and it was so much fun. I was in the best mood afterwards. I cannot wait to go again. We had family over for dinner Saturday night and relaxed most of Sunday. Our paleo eating is still going well and I made the most incredible strawberry-rhubarb crisp for dessert the other evening.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Well I didn’t get much done this week. Sheesh! The week flew by so fast. I did somehow manage to make it to the gym everyday this week though, so this Mama is feeling good. Our paleo diet is going lovely, aside from the occasional handfuls of popcorn here and there, but seriously…my body feels great. Oh, and I got a haircut for the first time in 5 months…total win.

Here is what I am loving this week:

* Ways to help a child be blessing…love it.

* This print.

* This photo shoot is lovely.

* White chocolate pie…oh my.

Also loving ~

* A nice day at the salon.

* Breezy nights.

* Coconut manna.

* Smoothies.

It’s a Monday: Positive Thinking

29th July 2013

My week is off to a MUCH better start than last week. I have decided to throw out the negative thoughts and guilt that have been accumulating over my daughters horrible sleep patterns, and to think positive and have a “just go with it” attitude. It seems to be working, so far. I cannot change how my daughter sleeps and I know that one day it will get better, so for now I am just going to love on her and keep working towards getting her to sleep, someday.
This past weekend we trekked out to the beach and played in the tide pools, had family over for dinner, and went to the zoo on Sunday. We also have made a new rule about our new Paleo lifestyle. We have deemed Sunday as our cheat day where we can have one cheat meal and one cheat dessert. That may be why my mood is a little brighter this Monday, SUGAR.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
Fun at the ZOO.Rhinos
